One of those watching was Harrison Fribush, a 14-year-old drummer from the Jewish day school. He had a plan to bring his choir together with another one to make music.
“I wanted to do something where I could change people’s lives using my passion for music,” Fribush said on “The View.” He contacted the Cardinal Shehan choir as part of his 2019 bar mitzvah project and began a collaboration.
Fribush made a documentary called Music Education Matters to raise money for after-school music programs in the city. The effort has now raised $11,000.
The two choirs sang last year at an Archdiocese of Baltimore fundraiser, but Martin Luther King Jr. Day was the first time they performed together on a national stage. They sang “Imagine” and “Reach Out and Touch Somebody’s Hand.”
